Work Experience: The Elementary School

I started to rethink my previous jobs and the post became a long ramble that was not very interesting. It also let me fall too deeply into bad mental health brain by dwelling on my past mistakes. So I’ll have to tackle that post another time. Both for interests sake as well as sorting outContinue reading “Work Experience: The Elementary School”

Taming Tuesdays

Sometimes you need to do small things for yourself. Like buying yourself $5 flip flops from Walmart because your feet hurt and you feel sad deep within your soul. I also got myself a small slice of cake and ate it mindfully. I wanted to shove it in my face so badly but I tookContinue reading “Taming Tuesdays”

Missing a Monday

Almost lost track of the days. My SO starts their work week on Sundays, so our week is set a little different than most people’s. Sleep was strange and all I remember is strange dreams. Considering the long string of bad days I’ve been experiencing lately, I attempted a ton of Opposite Action. I forcedContinue reading “Missing a Monday”

Lazy Sunday

I had my SO wake me up early this morning so I could FINALLY satisfy my craving for pancakes. I made buttermilk ones. Really simple recipe. 2 cups self-rising flour, 2 1/4 cups buttermilk, splash of vanilla extract, 4 Tablespoons melted butter, dash of salt, 2 eggs, and 3 Tablespoons of sugar. Don’t overmix becauseContinue reading “Lazy Sunday”

Broken Down

I woke up this morning feeling horrible. I remembered one flaw to Intermittent Fasting. Low blood sugars. I had to break my fast and, guys, it broke me. I ate a peach and cried my eyes out. I haven’t been able to eat what I want due to conflicts in the kitchen. So I’ve beenContinue reading “Broken Down”

Some Bad Days

Trigger Warning: Brief mention of purging further into post. “Happiness is sand in your toes and a shell in your pocket.” I don’t have much happiness in my heart right now. Despite the DBT, I’m just feeling lower than I have in quite some time. I don’t have good ideas in my head and IContinue reading “Some Bad Days”

KARATE AT THE OLYMPICS~!!!

I nearly forgot that the karate portion of the Olympics was coming up. I’m so excited about this, I’ll definitely be tuning in when I can. Schedule is posted here. Trying to remember the time difference. There’s been some funny articles about karate being in the Olympics. It’s definitely not the Karate Kid movie guys.Continue reading “KARATE AT THE OLYMPICS~!!!”

Argh, I’m Hangry!

Featured image was pulled from this article. At this point, this is where my SO would say “Hello, Hangry, I’m Dad.” Because … bad Dad jokes. Starting back on Intermittent Fasting again. And it’s always a bit of a grouch fest for me when I first start. Especially if I don’t eat RIGHT at myContinue reading “Argh, I’m Hangry!”

You Obviously Like Owls

In case it was not obvious … I like owls. A lot. Where did this obsession come from? At some point in middle school I worked as a junior zookeeper at the local zoo/park. Birds of prey were my absolute favorite thing there. I still remember the great horned owl there named Tiger. He wasContinue reading “You Obviously Like Owls”

Zephyr Place

Zephyr Place was the street I lived on in Maplewood, Missouri. I only lived in that house for a few months, but it was an important time in my life. Previously, I’d been homeless and was living wherever I could. Sleeping on the street. Sleeping in my friends’ vehicles. Sometimes on strangers couches because theyContinue reading “Zephyr Place”
